RATANIC PESTILENCIA

Nationality

American.  I  started  the  project  in  New  York  City.

In what year did you start?

I  started  the  Ratanic project at the very end of 2016. I used to paint and draw,  makezines, build collages, and was  just  making  lots  of art until  I  started  graduate  school.  After that  I burned  out  on everything  artistic.  So I went a different direction in  life  for a  while  and then one day  I  just  found  myself  sketching  again. I  went  from  being  reluctant  to  spend  money  on   even  graphite  pencils to screenprinting my own  stickers in months.

How you define your work?

I  don’t  like  to spell  out  my  intentions  too  much  and  they  have  developed  considerably  as  the   project  has  progressed  in time.  But  I am  trying  to  bring  danger  and  play  back  to  art.  I  would   love  for  someone  to  see  a  Ratanic  sticker  or  poster  and  get  the same  feeling  I had  when I  heard punk  and  metal  for the  first  time.
I would like people to feel  something  almost  unconscious in them,  something  dark  that  needs  to be  expressed.  And  by  dark  I don’t mean   bad  or necessarily  negative…  it  could  just e something repressed, something  they  are  unaware of, something they don’t  even understand.

You change stickers?

I  used  to  do  lots  of  trades  but  due  to  financial  difficulty  I  have  been unable  to fulfill trades over the last  several  months.

Where to follow you ?
